The Chinese state-run media on Monday blamed the election defeat on the "separatist stand" of Taiwanese President Tsai Ingu-Wen's party and said that it would have to "face-to-face" on relations with the mainland. Tsui resigned as head of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), after which there was heavy loss in city and county seats during Saturday's self-governance and wide voting in Democratic Taiwan. The main opposition Kuomintang (KMT), which inspected unprecedented cold with Beijing before assuming the post of Tsai in 2016, earned profit from China's growing pressure on the island, which is considered as a reunion of its territory. . State-run China Daily said that Taiwanese people are unhappy, the government has not pulled the island out of semi-economic stagnation and its policies have "ignored the interests of many groups".
In an editorial, Dainik said, "The separatist attitude of the Tsei administration has not only rejected their important relations with the Chinese mainland, but it has made it unpopular with the people on both sides of the Straits." "Elections show that the Tsai administration has betrayed the interests of Taiwan and has become a problem, whose work has gone away from the practical needs of the Taiwanese people and the historical truth of the consensus is only one China." Beijing has demanded to increase tsunami and DPPs to increase military drills, hunt associates and successfully celebrate international businesses including airlines, so that they can list the island as part of China on their websites. Nationalist Global Times said in an editorial, "Radical thinking and reflector entering the green camp has misled the DPP."
